Live Baltimore Marketing Center going to Charles St.

Real Estate Watch

February 03, 2002

The Live Baltimore Marketing Center, an organization that promotes city living, will have a more visible location when it moves into new headquarters on Charles Street in June.

The move parallels the program's maturation into a stand-alone nonprofit organization after operating within the Citizens Planning and Housing Association since 1997. Tracey Gosson, the program's executive director, said Live Baltimore will gain nonprofit status by July 1.

Live Baltimore leased a 2,800-square-foot storefront location in the historic Charles Street business district that will double as administrative headquarters and a one-stop shop for prospective home buyers and renters.

"It's a high foot-traffic area," Gosson said. "We wanted to be near downtown. A big target audience are city workers" who live in the counties.

The center will offer interactive kiosks and walk-in services for people interested in Baltimore neighborhoods and living options, and information on homebuyer incentive programs such as Live Near Your Work and the Baltimore City Employee Homeownership Program.

A licensed real estate agent will be available to help homebuyers search for available city properties.
